And no I'm not offended or anything, I just find it sad how involved people get into the love theme in BG2, it's a great part of the game, but I think some people take it waaaay too seriously.




Dude thats not the point, The romances are there to have fun with. And since it is a possiblity that a gay person may play BG II then he or she should have the oppertunity to have a homosexual romance in the game. Fair is fair. But because of Homophobic and or "Christian" responses to such a script would be huge and loud, they can't. Thats what we are discussing. Not the "Its fantasy get a grip on your life and don't take it seriously BS you just spouted. I live reality 13 to 14 hours a day and lately the reality that surrounds me just happens to SUCK!! So if I want to lose myself in a game, in a wonderfull game that just happens to let me romance a girl along with kicking monster's @sses and solving puzzles, SO BE IT!!

I agree with Jorath; get a life. There is a lot more to the BG series than the romances. Try and play the game for killing things without getting arrested (no, I'm not crazy. I'm just wearing this straight jacket to make a fashion statement) and making a stupid gnomish wildmage who always gets stuff wrong and ends up blowing up his party. If you just play BG2 for the romance options, you might has well have signed onto a dating chatroom.

Yo sup peeps. I gotta agree with that one dude who said its just a game. Why are you all fighting about should there be gay or lesbian romances in BG2? Some of oyu kinda got problems but im not gonna talk shit cause i dont wanan make enemies on this board like i did on the day of defeat board for posting cheats. Anyways its just a game man i mean is that the only reason you peeps play BG2? to get romances? that pretty sad....

Chill out.........he DID mean no offence - and here we are, ratting him like he's offended the entire forums!!

Although, he never DID delete the topic line, I do agree that its bad judgement to base NPCs on romances alone.

Anyway, just stick it cool.....play cool, it's not a war on NPCS - and perhaps he even meant it as a joke.

And weird NPCs are like Jaheria - for loving her club.

LOL i think 1 of the best parts about the game are forums like these, lol bickering about homosexuality in games!! okay ponder this, say 3/4 of the world was right handed and 1/4 was left handed and u manufactured scissors or something, would you make right or left handed scissors? RIGHT!! game manufaturers would use the same logic when making games and wouldn't jepordize the selling of their game for the sake of homosexuality which does not have the majority or even near it

Yeah isn't it going a bit too far to think of things like that.

I think sometimes people get confused where the line is between game and real life
A game doesn't have to be an exact replica of real life and cater to all the different types of people/things......
The romances in the game are just a fun element they added, its not like its a real love situation here......

a lot of people have said that it am taking the game way to seriously, but i wasnt meaning it THAT seriously, like it wasnt a joke, but it wasnt super serious either, also, someonesaid that didnt delete the topic, thats coz no one said they were really offended or anything or told me to take it off.

(also i dont know how to take it off, whenever i try it says i dont have the right password or something)

Guys, i'm still trying to get any romance going...I think Jaheira might be kinda keen on me, but she never seems to anything except complain and ask all kinds of philosophical stuff [img]smile.gif[/img]

I just had to reply to this one. But here is my typical straight male response. Lesbians would be awesome. But would burn the game if there was male fudge packing going on.
